Science in Faith

Equipping Christian Leadership in an Age of Science at Great St Mary's

As people of faith in the 21st century, engaging with science is more important than ever. At Great St Mary’s we understand this so much so that in [month, year] we were offered a grant by the ECLAS Project to develop our community’s engagement within the area of science and religion. 

With humanity facing the triple planetary crises of pollution, biodiversity loss and climate change, our project educates young people about how the solutions to these interconnected issues can be found through faith – as we look inwardly to ascertain how we ought to treat others and the planet, both now and in the future. If we are to achieve a sustainable, just world for humans and nonhumans alike, we must engage with the science, not forgetting the duty we have to each other as God’s creation.

We strive to teach those around us community events, engaging in local schools through teaching and assembly and by sharing resources that you can share with your loved ones.

Our work is gratefully funded by the ECLAS Project. ECLAS was born from the conviction that science is a gift from God, but that too often Christian leaders lack the confidence and tools to engage with scientific questions.

What we do

It it critical that the ideas shared above are communicated to different age groups in a way appropriate for them. Teaching must be engaging, science-based and interactive, and inspire further action outside of our work. This project aims to develop innovative science-based training for schools and adults concerning all components of sustainability. In particular, our resources and teaching focus on providing information about climate change and human actions that lead to the spread of (a) bacterial disease because of anti-microbial resistance and (b) new viral diseases.


We are present within the Church Schools of Cambridge giving lessons about faith and sustainability.

Children's Church

As part of Great St Mary's Children's Church, we provide craft activities, providing young children with hands-on ways on engaging with sustainability.

Free Resources

The resources that we share with our local community are free to use, and available for download online.
